With “one of the largest fishing platforms to be found in a flybridge boat this size” (Powerboat Guide), the 144 square foot aft deck is designed with one thing in mind…let’s go fishing! Her September 2010 survey reads; “This 1988 Viking 48’ convertible is a very well designed and very well built fishing machine with cruising comfort. The interior craftsmanship has been very, very well maintained. The market value of the vessel is enhanced by her upgrades and electronics. With the continued care and maintenance she will give her owners many more years of pleasure.”

Lauren has been owned by a conscientious yachtsman who is moving up to a larger boat.  The interior is in excellent condition throughout and she shows beautifully.  Recent rebuilds of the 8V-92’s have just three hundred hours running.  A slew of top quality electronic, navigation and audio/visual gear enhances the inventory of the boat.

A well respected builder and a purposeful design for the serious fisher!  Take a good look, you won’t be disappointed.
